Infamous is a new super hero title from the makers of the “Sly” series and more recently “Pain”. But don’t let that give you the wrong idea, the folks at SuckerPunch aren’t playing around anymore.
Infamous in stores May 26, 2009
The game starts off with a huge explosion that levels six entire city blocks and the next thing you know you see a man crawling out of the crater at the center of the blast. You think to yourself, how could anyone survive that? As you watch the man stagger to his feet you realize that this is you, and you aren’t just anyone. You feel powerful as electricity flows throughout your body but unsure as you don’t see another living soul in sight. And this is how “Infamous” starts.
The city that just got obliterated is Empire City, but there are other questions like what were you doing there in the first place? With “Infamous” they took a different approach, I mean even though Cole is now developing superhero like powers, that doesn’t mean he wants to or has to become one. Basically, he is a regular guy with real problems and just because you now have super powers doesn’t automatically mean you want to save the world. The choice is yours, what will you choose?
After a lot of back and forth the game is finally set for a 26 May 2009 release and that’s not all. Apparently, early copies of Infamous will include a voucher for access to the UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves™ Multiplayer Beta. Look for the UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves Multiplayer Beta vouchers included inside specially marked boxes of inFAMOUS, while supplies last. Beta program begins 6/3/09 and ends 6/28/09. That’s right folks, you get pretty much a month of access to really get a feel for Uncharted 2, get it first and I will see you there.
